Invasive Plant Management Contractors
In British Columbia, it is the responsibility of land managers to manage noxious plants on their property - either by managing the plants themselves, or hiring a certified contractor.
Individuals who wish to apply pesticides for the control of noxious weeds, including on private landscapes, are required to have a Pesticide Applicator Certificate within the Industrial Vegetation Management & Noxious Weed category. Please see "BC Pesticide Certification & Training" for more information.
For private land owners who do not wish to control the invasive plants themselves, or for invasive plants that are difficult to manage (ie. Knotweed), there are local Invasive Plant Management Contractors that can be hired by private land owners (by alphabetical order):
